Towards the Union Of Eastern Slavs
President Putin has outlined the goals of the military operation in the Ukraine: demilitarization and denazification. This is quite a concrete program. For forced demilitarization (and all methods other than direct coercion have been exhausted and have had no effect), full military-strategic control of the entire territory is required. Denazification requires complete political and administrative control of the entire country. This is not a request or a wish. This is an order. And in order to enforce it, it is necessary to have a direct and clear form of hierarchy.
Of course, while military action is underway, it is too early to talk about the implementation of the goals, but it would be irresponsible not to think about it at all. The cost of this operation is enormous. People are dying and will die, alas, more and more, until a complete and crushing (irreversible) victory is achieved. And here begins, perhaps, the most important thing of all. In order not to lose the victory, it is necessary to have a clear plan of action.
Obviously, it would not be wise to be satisfied with bringing a pro-Russian group into power in the Ukraine. Moreover, I would simply call this a “betrayal.
Putin is absolutely correct in calling the Ukraine, we are now liberating from the junta, the Anti-Russia. But there simply cannot be another Ukraine. The Ukraine as both a project and a reality was, is, and can only be Anti-Russia. Otherwise, why have an independent statehood at all?
Consequently, defeating the Ukraine and preserving the Ukraine is a logical and geopolitical contradiction. Of course, it is possible to repeatedly weaken the military potential and insist on punishing the criminals among the nationalists and retributionaists. But after a while, if we just leave the Ukraine to be—albeit under the control of pro-Moscow forces, everything will go back to normal. There is a logic to the Ukraine’s political processes. And it is not about the elites, but about statehood itself. It reproduces the same pattern, dating back to the times of the Galicia-Volhynia Duchy. The Ukraine can only be an oligarchy. This means that it is doomed to be the Anti-Imperia (according to the logic perfectly described in Konstantin Malofeev’s book, Imperiya [Empire]).
However, military operations, such as the one being deployed now, can only be a one-time thing. Therefore, Moscow has only one attempt to solve the Ukrainian question. The last one. And no, Yanukovych 2.0 we cannot afford.
I am convinced that the solution lies in the direction of creating an East Slavic Union, which would include Russia, the Ukraine and Belarus. If the Ukrainians and partly the Belarusians refuse to call themselves “Russians,” believing that this name refers only to the Velikorussians (“Moskals“); that is, the people who created Vladimir (Moscow) Russia and then built the Russian Empire on a world scale, we can hardly impose a wider interpretation of this term on them. This must be reckoned with. But the Great Russians, Little Russians, and Belarusians (and, incidentally, Rusyns) consider themselves to be Eastern Slavs, without any reservations. So let us unite the East Slavs in one political Union. And let’s create a common leadership, which will consist of Eastern Slavs, regardless of how they define themselves at a lower level of ethnic taxonomy. The main thing is to get away from nations and nation-states. After all, it is the nations that cause fratricidal wars—such as the one now going on in the Ukraine.
The Union of Eastern Slavs will preserve the peoples, but will abolish the nations as fictitious and provocative artificial entities.
Who lives in Russia? Who wants to? All citizens of the Eastern Slavic Union. Who lives in the Ukraine or Belarus? They do. Is it a state of Great Russians? No. This is—the state of the Eastern Slavs and other peoples who have tied their fate to the Eastern Slavs.
We are not at war with the Ukraine.
This is not a war with the Ukraine. It’s a confrontation with globalism as a whole planetary phenomenon.
Confrontation at all levels—geopolitical and ideological. Russia rejects everything in globalism—unipolarity, Atlantism, on the one hand, and liberalism, anti-tradition, technocracy, in a word, the Great Reset, on the other. It is clear that all European leaders are part of the Atlanticist liberal elite. And we are at war with it. Hence their legitimate reaction.
Russia is now excluded from the globalist networks. It no longer has a choice: either it must build their world or disappear. Russia has set a course to build its own world, its own civilization. And now the first step is being taken. But sovereign in the face of globalism can only be a large space, the state-continent, the state-civilization. No country can withstand complete disconnection for a long time. Russia is now creating a field of global resistance.
Its victory would be a victory for all alternative forces, both right-wing and left-wing, and all nations. As always, we are beginning the most difficult and dangerous processes. But when we win, everyone takes advantage of them. That’s the way it’s meant to be. We are now setting the stage for real multipolarity. And those who are ready to kill us now will be the first to take advantage of our feat tomorrow.
I almost always write things that later come true. This will come true, too.
Breaking With The West—Salvation
What does it mean for Russia to break with the West? It is salvation. The modern West—where the Rothschilds, Soros, the Schwabs, Bill Gates and the Zuckerbergs triumph—is the most disgusting phenomenon in world history. It is no longer the West of Greco-Roman Mediterranean culture, the Christian Middle Ages, or even the violent and contradictory twentieth century. This is the graveyard of toxic waste of civilization—it is anti-civilization. And the faster and fuller Russia is disconnected from it, the sooner it returns to its roots. To what? Christian, Greco-Roman, Mediterranean—European—nm that is, to the roots common with the real West. These roots—their very own!—the modern West has cut them off. And in Russia they have remained intact.
Only now is Eurasia rearing its head. Only now is liberalism in Russia itself completely losing ground beneath its feet.
Russia is not Western Europe. Russia followed the Greeks, Byzantium and Eastern Christianity. And it is still following this very road. Yes, with zigzags and deviations. Sometimes in dead ends. But on it goes.
Russia stood up for the values of Tradition against the modern world. This is the same “rebellion against the modern world.” Don’t you recognize it?
And Europe must break with the West, and even the United States must follow those who reject globalism. And then everyone will understand the meaning of the modern war in the Ukraine.
Many people in the Ukraine used to understand this. But the terrible, rabid, liberal-Nazi propaganda left no stone unturned in the minds of the Ukrainians. They will come to their senses and fight with us for the kingdom of light, for tradition and a true Christian European identity. The Ukrainians are our brothers. They were, they are and they will be.
The break with the West is not a break with Europe. It is a break with death, degeneration and self-murder. It is the key to recovery. And Europe itself—the people of Europe—must follow our example: overthrow the antinational globalist junta. And build a real European House, a European Palace, a European Cathedral.
Stop The Hate
I think the most important thing right now is to stay calm. The swiftness of the military operation took not only our enemies but also our friends by surprise. No one expected it. Hence the surge of hysteria on all sides. But it is important to understand that it cannot be a matter of one week to take control of a huge, well-armed country that had been preparing for a war with us for eight years, and morally for much longer. After the rapid first day, events could not develop as quickly, even under the most favorable circumstances. This requires restraint and a clear conscience on everyone’s part.
There are several points that seem to me to be central:
- Patriots fear that we may, under certain conditions (for example, after the mopping up of the DNR and LNR territories), stop. This fear is unfounded. Such a large-scale operation could only be launched by Moscow with clear and non-negotiable goals that do not depend on almost anything—up to nuclear blackmail. That is why everything will be brought to its final goal. At any cost and in any format.
- Liberals (conscious enemies of Russia) and emotional pacifists (people who ignore geopolitics, political science, and international relations) have the illusion that protests and online petitions can change something (they can’t change anything).
- All Western moves against Russia under these conditions will only strengthen the patriotic wing and finally weaken the liberal wing. The lives of ordinary people will not be particularly affected. After all, only ideologically fanatical monetarists believe that the currency board is the only currency model. They do not even want to hear about financial sovereignty. Well, they shouldn’t. The government can issue as much money as it needs. To tame inflation, you can resort to a two-track economy (according to the plan of Alexander Galushka). The West did not give us high-tech in any way. The energy market in Asia is potentially endless for us. So, we will endure and become stronger.
- Many patriotic resources have been agonizing the Ukrainian neo-Nazis who are trying in desperation to hack websites and social media accounts. For those who have to be logically mobilized to physically fight back against ourselves, where does the time and energy for such activities come from? The answer is, it’s not from the Ukraine attacks. The Ukraine, as such after Maidan, is only a cover for NATO’s larger geopolitical strategy against us. That is why we are eliminating that cover.
- The Ukrainians have been, and always will be, our brothers and sisters. Let them say what they want. We are Orthodox Eastern Slavs with common roots, different turns of history and a common future. And no one can do anything about it. We have repeatedly diverged and then reconnected. In different circumstances and in different ways. The Ukrainians are not enemies—they are ours. We Velikorussians are no joke. And they aren’t a joke either. But we have to respect them. We’ll soon live in one state with them. And they will only benefit from that. And we have to make them benefit from it. But only from unity, not from fratricide.
Georgia And Its Neutrality
Georgia, by not joining the sanctions against Russia, is acting very sensibly and correctly. It may just be due to cold calculations and the desire to preserve statehood. But it is also a sensible move. The brotherly Orthodox Georgian people went through the same temptation of Bernard-Henri Levy and globalism, and suffered terrible losses. But the Ukraine is just about to cease to exist. And everyone who understands anything understands that. And no country would wish that.
If Georgia continues to act adequately, this will definitely cause a corresponding—positive—reaction from Moscow. In a critical situation, any gesture takes on tremendous significance, even if it means neutrality. Otherwise, it would be unnoticeable.
On The Passivity Of Good People
I have long noticed that people who are bright and upright are focused and ashamed, which sometimes leads to passivity. Scum is active, aggressive, and shameless. Without becoming like scum, let us nevertheless engage in the course of the historic war of Light against Darkness. Right now, our support—on all levels—in prayers, thoughts, posts, words, texts, even reprints of important and properly organized information (not just anything) is very important.
The system, (according to Luhmann) in the flow of information, first of all discards the unnecessary, irrelevant or infected (coded). Thus, information becomes meaningful and turns into a message. One well-chosen news bulletin, separated from the stream, can induce a correct orientation in the reader, create an adequate picture of what is happening. And any bright person can do this. It only seems that we don’t influence anything. We do, when we are active, focused, and awakened.
Plan “B” Of The West
It is becoming obvious that the West has surrendered the Ukraine.
But there is also a “Plan B.” It is not difficult to lay it out. The bet is made for the period when the war is over. At that time, there will be centers of terrorist activity on a single permeable Russian-Ukrainian territory. They will act in the Ukraine, against the official authorities and the Russian military, but they will also spill over into Russian territory. The capital’s liberal intelligentsia will be politely asked to shelter some Nazis with land mines so that they can organize a terrorist attack. The idea is to create chaos and prerequisites for a regime change operation. This is what the foreign instructors are trained to do.
Something similar was planned with the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan—a bet that the Taliban, banned in Russia, will open a southern front against Russia in Central Asia.
This plan should be taken into account. And then go about your business.
Alexander Dugin is a widely-known and influential Russian philosopher. His most famous work is The Fourth Political Theory (a book banned by major book retailers), in which he proposes a new polity, one that transcends liberal democracy, Marxism and fascism. He has also introduced and developed the idea of Eurasianism, rooted in traditionalism. This article appears through the kind courtesy of Geopolitica.
